It can be a good thing to keep relations on a positive note, and not to "burn bridges".

You never know when good things can happen because of this.

@LSHF - goes to show that a positive attitude towards your former employers goes a long way.
LSHF - 2/3/2021, 5:29 AM
@Blergh - You are right.

At least twice in my working lifetime, I left a job (on good terms) due to the then current management (I just didn't tell them that), and was later re-hired when new management was running things.

Imagine if they announced him as the director of F4 instead of...

Would've been a nice surprise.

@Doomsday8888 - Jon Watts isn't a bad director in any way dude, cmon now.

Maybe someday, if Kevin let's him have free reign.
Origame - 2/3/2021, 5:20 AM
@bobevanz - what I don't like about the mcu is that it's just not in a position to give too wild of different tones and themes. They all have to feel like they connect, not just have that fact they connect out there. Sometimes you get people like Gunn and the Russo bros find a way to make their vision work, but for the most part past phase 1 it's not really "this superhero the movie" it's "the mcu movie 500 featuring this hero".
MyCoolYoung - 2/3/2021, 5:44 AM
@Origame - phase 1 and most of 2 had the creative committee. If you can look at all the movies after that and say they had the same theme then I think you’re being disingenuous
Origame - 2/3/2021, 5:50 AM
@MyCoolYoung - the only one being disingenuous is you as I never said they all have the same theme. I said MOST have SIMILAR themes and TONES!
Whaley87 - 2/3/2021, 6:22 AM
@Origame - That's still a disingenuous way of looking at their movies though.
Origame - 2/3/2021, 9:14 AM
@Whaley87 - it's really not.
Blergh - 2/3/2021, 4:07 AM
I always took his departure as Feige being the general director of the MCU and letting directors-for-hire take care of the individual gears in an overall machine controled by Kevin.

Edgar would have been too unique for that it seems.

What did he say about aliens?
Amuro - 2/3/2021, 5:09 AM
Edgar Wright deserved better. I kinda liked Ant-Man but I was still wondering about the movie we could have had with him at the helm.

Still, Peyton Reed did a good job and the cast was great.
Origame - 2/3/2021, 5:23 AM
@Amuro - id say watch baby driver. It's the movie he made right after all this drama and it's about as close to a superhero heist film he's ever done.

Also, if you know much about his style you'd know some of the jokes that are clearly from him, such as the "Luis story" scenes or the toy train moment.
MyCoolYoung - 2/3/2021, 5:46 AM
@Waddles - I’m sure there’s something there with Feige because they hadn’t spoke in years, but there was a creative committee in place at the time
MyCoolYoung - 2/3/2021, 6:09 AM
@Waddles - definitely. I mean he, reportedly, didn't want women or minorities leading the movies. Tells you all you need to know about that guy
LSHF - 2/3/2021, 5:54 PM
@Waddles - Yep. And Kevin not only has to make sure he pleases the majority of the audience (who are NOT comic book readers), but also he needs to please Mickey (The Mouse).

This comes before pleasing comic book fans. He made this very clear many years ago. Comic book fans are their third priority, although he and his team have made far more efforts in the last few years to please the comic book fans than they ever have before.

But, as everyone has seen here, "You can't lease them all!"
LSHF - 2/3/2021, 5:59 PM
@MyCoolYoung - @Waddles - I remember reading (or watching) an interview with Joss after the "Age of Ultron" film and he was constantly having to re-write the script on a daily basis because:

1) to improve it
2) because actors kept wanting changes
3) this useless "creative committee" which was working with comic book stories that were NOT in the same universe had to approve everything.

It was a daily struggle for him.

creative committee
MyCoolYoung - 2/3/2021, 6:15 PM
@LSHF - I remember him speaking about how drained he was after that but I love age of ultron though. After that movie they were disbanded and we got a goat black panther because of it
LSHF - 2/3/2021, 6:29 PM
@MyCoolYoung - I don't allow little things here and there in films to hinder my enjoyment of them (I just ignore them and eventually forget about most of them), SO, I enjoyed "Age of Ultron" a LOT, as it had a LOT going for it. I mean, it was PACKED with one cool scene/moment/performance/special effect/joke/etc. after another.

That omitted "Thor in the Cave" scene was not long, and it still seems weird it was left out because of some bigwig at Marvel Studios felt the film was too long with it. But it would have caused less confusion had the entire scene been left in there.

Now, it seems we don't have that problem anymore, as the newer MCU films seem to be longer (if they need to be). No more going to the outtakes on the Blu-rays/DVDs to see if any of the confusing moments were explained.

Yes, I think I remember reading or hearing Kevin state that they were not (or probably were not) going to get the Black Panther film under Ike.
